Best Seat for Airline Travel

We are taking a trip to Disney next Feb. and I'll need to get 2 car seats for my twin girls to bring with us. We'll be renting a car while we are down there. I'm still not sure if we are going to be bringing them on the plane or not. I was thinking of the Cosco Scenera, since it's so cheap and lightweight. I'm also planning on using these as a second set of seats for my mom's car. Right now, she's using their Snugrides, which they are about to outgrow. We just bought the True Fits for our car and I can't imagine traveling with them. They are so big and bulky. Is the Cosco Scenera a good choice or is there a better seat out there for our situation?

Thanks,
Christie

We just traveled last week and I debated between the Scenara and Saftery 1st Avenue. I went with the Avenue and it was well worth the extra $30ish bucks! It has EPS foam and is way more comfy than the Scenara. Plus, the EPS foam gives it extra protection! It's well worth the extra money!

I have to agree. We have a Scenera and my daughter thinks it is uncomfortable. I always think of taking it but in the past have lugged the Marathon on planes, and next trip to Alaska, will be taking a Radian. It is a terribly long flight to expect my child to ride in an uncomfortable seat. I agree too about the EPS foam, the Scenera works for us because we keep it mostly for the grandparents to use in emergencies, but in retrospect, if I planned to use it frequently, I'd want a slightly nicer seat! I will say that we've gotten more use from the Scenera that I expected. My dd is turning 4 and is a leggy 42", but can still use the Scenera. I expected she would have outgrown the top slots by now but she still has half an inch of torso growth.:thumbsup:
